German to English translations [PRO]
German term or phrase: zapfsully d e f e n s e
One person was very unhappy with all the translation help I needed the past few days.
Normally I would not have accepted a text like this, but it was an addition to several pages of business-related text. I am fairly new to this site/business and had not yet gotten around to update my profile. however, I did so today, so you can see that I did not crawl out from under a rock.
In the meantime, I would like to thank everybody for their qualified help and, by the way, i am a "she". Thanks again.

Welcome


Explanation:

I think the key word in your explanation above is ONE person ...
Obviously I can't speak for everybody, but I've been using this forum for quite some time now and I honestly don't believe that the majority of us regular long-time users would agree with the complaint you received. And by the way, although business does get transacted over Pthe Proz web site, this terms help section is setup as a forum designed specifically for translators to help each other. I for one am sorry you received such a poor reception and would like to welcome you to the forum! Personally, when someone asks for help -- even when they have a number of questions on one extra long or particularly tricky text -- the last thing I would think to do is check out their profile. So please don't worry about it, ask away.....and happy translating!
Regards,
Beth

Explanation:
I would like to explain why I made that remark, being new to this site. During the week-end, one user, not registered, asked about 20 questions, one after the other, never attributing any points. Finally, a pro put in the same remark I sent to zapfsully. This was after having been hassled by email by a couple of persons working together (others had the same experience with them). Well, the first person got finally blocked, the couple still went on with their questioning.

Now for zapfsully, I fully understand her position and I have congratulated her for her straightforward explanation. And I got a thank you note.
I welcome her again and will certainly help when I see her questions.
Greeting to all of you
